Employees are resigning in droves across the country. You might think that wages are the number one reason. However, a new survey suggests other factors:
- Of 1,000 full-time U.S. workers who started a new job in 2021, 40% say burnout is the main reason they left their previous position.
- 34% say they left their job because of organizational changes at their company.
- 20% report they sought a new job because they didn’t feel valued at work.
- 19% say that benefits were insufficient at their old job.
Nearly a third (28%) of respondents say they left their job without having a new position lined up. These individuals were twice as likely to say that they resigned because of burnout.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that 19 million workers quit their jobs between March and July of this year.
